Today in Colorado Avalanche History

193156_medium

December 2nd, 1995 - Patrick Roy is in net as the Montreal Canadiens hosted the Detroit Red Wings. He gets absolutely shelled, allowing 5 goals in the first period (on 17 shots). Roy is incensed when coach Mario Tremblay is slow to pull Roy and St Patrick would eventually allow 9 goals on 26 shots in front of a jeering home crowd. When Tremblay finally gives Roy the hook in the 2nd period, a hot-headed Roy storms off and stops to tell team president Ronald Corey that he is done in Montreal.

He was.

4 days later, Roy was traded with forward Mike Keane to the Colorado Avalanche for Andrei Kovalenko, Jocelyn Thibault and Martin Rucinsky. Roy would win two Stanley Cups with the Avalanche.
